The Castle (ザ・キャッスル) is video game developed by ASCII and released for the SG-1000 in 1986. It is a port of an MSX game of the same name, and is largely identical due to the similar hardware between the two machines. Due to the decline of the SG-1000 and emergence of the Sega Master System, the game was not released in Europe or Australia like many other SG-1000 games. The Castle was the last SG-1000 game to be released commercially by Sega on a cart, and the only SG-1000 to adopt...

Originally released in June 1984, the Atari 7800 was the successor to Atari's 5200. A victim of unfortunate timing, the 7800 was released shortly before the great video game crash of 1983. Re-launched by Atari in 1986 as a competitor to the Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Master System, the Atari 7800 was backwards compatible with original Atari 2600 titles. In 2009, IGN chose the 7800 to be their 17th best video game console of all time. They justified this relatively low ranking...
